A letter from the maid

Since I began a part-time job a month ago, it has been a struggle to manage my time and energy and avoid squalor in my normally neat house. The following is a letter to my family:

Dear Family,
Please be aware that "the maid" has cut her hours to part time. Today, she squeezed in a shower after making dinner, wiping up crumbs on the table and floor, mopping, vacuuming, washing, folding and putting away laundry, as well as other various household duties and doodies (baby and dog).

Her schedule no longer permits the completion of these things each and every day. 

In short, find something undone, unclean, un-put-away, or in an otherwise unsatisfactory state and fix it!
Thanks, Mom

I made the "o" in Mom a smiley face. I hope they laugh and then put something away or take out the trash.


  1. Oh this is so apt, I'm working part time and should take on more hours but I am so concerned about "my home" I don't know how women who work full time manage to keep it all together!

  2. I wonder how they do it too! I'll be back to design in a day or two.
